What do the Christmas lights mean?

Every December (and even before) all the cities of the world have been filled with lights for a long time to celebrate Christmas, but do you really know why even the last most forgotten corner of the planet is illuminated even with a light or candle? This it is one more ingredient that surrounds the entire network of Christmas dates.

Already in the Gospel of Saint John, Jesus said to the Jews: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life ”. In addition, the catechism also includes this statement: "He who believes in Him does not remain in darkness."

In many countries they began to light candles from December 8, the day on which we celebrate the Immaculate Conception until the birth of Jesus, exactly for that reason, because the Virgin in her womb the Child, in the light of the world that illuminated the whole earth ago more than two thousand years, at the time he was wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger, for thirty-three years of life, his passion, his resurrection and up to the present day, because we must not forget that the Paschal Candle is also present at Easter, where it is recalled that Christ is the light of the world every day.

 We have the opportunity to go down the street and be aware that these lights do not really represent a commercial "boom", but rather identify them with the light of Christ and also ours, because we do not forget that Christians, in our desire to wanting to resemble Jesus, we are called to be the light of the world.

No matter what your reasons are, faith or tradition in Hang My Christmas Lights will make you feel in love with this season!
